Buluuy Mirrii goes international

A few years ago, I wrote about a fashion designer, Colleen Tighe-Johnson, and her label Buluuy Mirrii.

It has been an exciting time for Colleen, as her label is now being shown internationally.

Just this month, Buluuy Mirrii, was showcased at the Virgin Australian Melbourne Fashion Festival.

Colleen is a proud Gomeroi woman from Moree NSW.

The Gomeroi (Gamilaroi) dreaming stories are her inspiration for her fabric designs. 

The patterns are soft and shimmery with beautiful background colours of purple, pinks and blues on georgette fabric - colours of the dragonfly.  

The label will be showcased in New Plymouth in New Zealand in July 2015.
